Very soon I am going to lay down the gauntlet and get professional on the ebook publishing world. Before that happens, I need to find a good blog tour. What is a blog tour? Simple, a writer finds various blogs that suits his genre and goes guest blogs on the site. It’s a win-win for both sides of the equation. The writer gets publicity for their books, the owner of the blog gets valuable content.
Now I’ve been blogging for about six years. Unfortunately some of my blogs went the way of v56. That’s fine as they probably would have little relevancy now. But I have started afresh here on monkeypantz (which has been many, many things) and intend on keeping a steady stream of life pumped into the site. But I do need to pick up my marketing steam (and chops) so my books can get out into the public eye.
What does this mean? It means I need blogs to collect to form a blog tour. There are two ways to do this:
- I can pay a service to put one together.
- I can seek out bold new worlds…you get the idea.
Now anyone that knows me knows I am all about Do It Yourself (DIY), so more than likely I will attempt to gather enough blogs myself to form a blog tour. If that doesn’t work out, I will go the paid route. So…to that end, I would like anyone out there that knows of a blog that would fit my bill (Horror, Thriller, Fantasy, Super Hero Satire genres) to contact me. For anyone running a blog out there that might suit my needs, you will get links reciprocated in kind.
Oh, and don’t forget, I can also do the Linux operating system blogs as well. I do those in my sleep (check out my work on Linux.com, Techrepublic.com, and Ghacks.net). But this blog tour will be about my novels.
As Shero might say: “Shoo!”
